5.0 out of 5 stars A great little hot-spot. 11 July 2013
Firstly I must say that I am very impressed with this item.

I bought this unit because I wanted a standalone Wi-Fi hotspot for a wedding,
that could be used to provide the guests with access to a photo printer and somewhere for them to upload or download their pictures.

Initially I was a little concerned by the lack of detail provided on the Amazon site, but I decided that the price was reasonable and that I'd go ahead and give it a try, I am very glad that I did, as so far the unit has exceeded my expectations.

The unit is a Wi-Fi HDD caddy (W3000PH) containing a 1TByte 2.5inch hard drive.
You can find more details about the caddy from the links below:

The manufacturer provides an Android and an iPhone App that you can run on your smart phone to transfer files, view images and play music. I have used the Android App on my Samsung Galaxy 3 phone and it works well, I have also accessed the drive from other apps (like the "ES File Explorer") without any problems.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cannot handle RAW files 11 Oct. 2013
By JimLep
I bought this drive because I am going to New Zealand for a 4 week holiday, and wanted to be able to back up my photos: I shoot in RAW format, which produces files 4 or 5 times as big as jpg (i.e. about 20 MB each), and I was afraid they would fill my iPad if I used that as a backup.

The drive is well made, but its instructions are poor (you can download a manual from the manufacturer's website, but this isn't well written, and sometimes seems to conflict with the Quick user guide leaflet provided). It's not immediately clear that you need to download a Client program for your computer, as well as an app for the iPad from the App store, but when I had got all that sorted out, I was able to get everything working (you need to add the device's own wifi network to your computer and iPad, or it will not be recognised).

All this took me a couple of hours, but it was very satisfying to be able to see the device from my other devices, and download/upload files. And this was when I discovered that, when I tried to transfer photos from my iPad it would only handle the jpg files - it wouldn't even recognise the RAW files. In fact there is quite a long list of file types it *will* recognise, but it seems that anything not on that list cannot be transferred (or even seen). You can see the list on the manufacturer's website ([...]

I emailed the manufacturer and had a quick response, suggesting that I could set my camera to shoot in jpg - which of course is not a satisfactory solution.

So, in short, if you only want to be able to store the file types that the device recognises, it would rate 5 stars. For me, it is virtually useless (though my wife will be able to use it, as she uses jpg), so I am afraid 3 stars is generous.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the novice, but good once it's working 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase
It took me a long time to get this thing working. I followed all of the instructions, downloading the apps wherever needed, and linking my devices wirelessly through its wi-fi facility, and my router through its Ethernet connection. But I was unable to put anything on the disk, either from a phone/tablet, or from my desktop machine. I had a feeling the problem was to do with formatting the drive, as I had read elsewhere of one reviewer having to do that. But there didn't seem to be any means of formatting it. Disk Manager couldn't see it on my PC. Eventually I prised the top off the box, removed the drive (this one was a Seagate, judging by the model number) and installed it into another caddy. Finally Disk Manager recognised it, saying it needed an MBR and formatting. Once I had done that and re-fitted it, everything worked fine. One reviewer said that for them they just plugged it into their PC and it worked immediately. I can only assume then, that sometimes this box comes pre-formatted, while sometimes they just forget.

It's a clever device, now that it's working nicely. It can be a standard caddy, if all you need is to plug into a PC or media streamer. It benefits from USB 3.0, but is downward compatible. It can charge your devices through its USB output. And of course it can wirelessly link to phones/tablets for streaming or just for backup storage. At £80 it seems like very good value, especially as the Seagate drive on its own is currently on sale for about £43.

Do I really need this gadget? Time will tell.....

2.0 out of 5 stars not for the faint Hearted! 30 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase
I'm sure it will be excellent... However it took several hours to get my laptop to see it with the cable during which time I stuffed up my hard drive.Connected immediately with my tablet by wifi However! Still struggling with the software to control it but I'm sure I will get the hang of it eventually. Arrived promptly, well packed, instructions poor and website not helpful but Googled my problems and managed to sort it out. If you know your computer stuff then it's worth it but in this day of plug and play not what you would expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!! 12 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this hdd as it was the cheapest of the options for getting a hdd that was a wifi hotspot as well. I had considered the Seagate version but it was notably more expensive.
So far it has been on holiday with me twice and has worked perfectly on both occasions. It is very easy to get media (and other data) on to it, just plug it into your PC and drag and drop it couldn't be any easier.
Connecting to it via wifi is also very simple, the companion app for Android and apple is fairly basic but works very well. I have only used the Android version so can't say if the apple version is equally easy to use but from the pictures they look pretty much the same.
Streaming kids programs and movies was very smooth with no skipping or dropping of audio or vision. I haven't really destruction tested it yet, the info says you can attach 5 devices and I have only had 2 attached at any one time but there was no drop in quality on either device.
Finally, I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the item, I had thought it might be a bit of a big ugly lump of a thing but it is definitely not. It is a nicely designed compact unit that looks good.
I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who wants a small well built wifi hdd.
